Why do other people's farts smell worse than your own?

    Isn't it all basically the same smell? Why the revulsion to the farts of others then when you can live with your own?

    I don't know, I've come up with some real stinkers that made me change seats. Better yet, when you know you've got a nasty building up in the grocery store, then you leave an SBD in the aisle and move away, quietly watching for other shoppers to blunder into the invisible noxious cloud.
    Muahahahaha

    We can tolerate our own odors but not that of others. Some people have really weird diets and their farts are just horrible. I've been in a crowded place and someone will do a silent one, and everyone starts looking around trying to figure out who cut the cheese and what the hell they were eating. Some people take off their shoes and their feet stink. And underarm odor can be lethal, but the person with it doesn't even realize it. Some people love the smell when a skunk sprays.

    People's noses can get so used to the smells around them that they don't notice anymore, like working in a paper factory or a chocolate factory. But that's for long exposures for a long time. If someone doesn't notice how bad their own farts smell but others are gagging, maybe they should take a shower, wash their clothes, get rid of the skid marks, get off the bean burrito diet, etc.

    With some experience changing baby diapers I know for a fact that spaghetti makes for the worst smelling baby poo and farts.

    But somehow baby farts don't really rupulse me.

    That is so immature.

    Personally I find farts are like children. You love your own but hate everyone elses!

    Granma goes to the Doctor.

    "Doctor, everyone tells me that I have severe flatulence, but I can't smell a thing. Is there something wrong with my digestion?"

    "No Madam, but there is something seriously wrong with your nose."
